Difficulty With NOTHING

Jeremiah 32:17  ‘Oh, Lord God, you did indeed make heaven and earth by your mighty power and great strength. Nothing is too hard for you!

How often do I stumble over this concept that is repeated numerous times and ways in the Bible!!

And in our hymnology–

Nothing! Nothing! Absolutely nothing! Nothing is too difficult for Thee!

What part of ‘nothing’ don’t I understand? Why does my ‘something’ always seem outside the realm of His ‘nothing?’ Why do I constantly end up with the Lord saying to me, “O you of little faith?”

Will there ever come a time when I will hear Him say, “Well done, good and faithful servant?”

Local bar serves up scripture with suds

The headline above was taken from a front-page newspaper story in our community. The following is quoted directly from the first two paragraphs of the article:

It was a pretty common sight — the Bible setting (sic) open on a counter, waiting for someone with a thirst for religious knowledge to graze its pages. What wasn’t common was the freshly-poured glass of beer nearby; the many glass bottles of assorted alcoholic beverages in the room. It was weekly Bible study night at a seemingly unlikely place — Janie’s Cafe, a bar in Shamokin.

“I believe if Jesus were walking on the face of the earth as you and I are today this is the type of place he’d come to,” said Jane Stanchick-Garancheski, owner of Janie’s. She added that a bar is a place where trouble is likely to brew, a place where His presence is needed.

What do you think? Should something like this be stopped?
